Therapist Hiring Screening Course
Helps identify good vision therapist candidates. Applies toward full course if you hire them.
Not sure if your new vision therapist has what it takes? One of the most difficult things to evaluate when hiring is whether or not the candidate can handle the rigors of learning all one needs to know to become an effective vision therapist. This course can help give you key insights on how quickly one can understand, absorb, and retain vision therapy material.
Consisting of 5 lectures from the full Vision Therapist Training course, the candidate will learn some very basic concepts in oculomotor, accommodation, and binocularity. However, the last lecture also includes some more advanced concepts in phorias and tropias.
You will be able to evaluate the candidate in several ways. First, we can give you access to see how many times they reviewed the lecture videos and how much time it took them to get through the material. After each lecture, they will have to take a 3-5 question quiz. We then recommend having the candidate return to your office so that you can orally ask some questions to know how well they understood the material.
If you decide to hire them, you can apply the purchase of this course to a full Vision Therapist Training course to unlock the remaining material to your new hire.
